A: A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could contact med mal attorneys to discuss, but if the nature of injury is transient and does not present significant damage, law firms could be reluctant to consider such a case due to the cost of med mal litigation. You could reach out to law firms for their opinions - that would be the most reliable way to find out what your options might be. Good luck
